Editors - 'The Weight Of Your Love'

Editors - 'The Weight Of Your Love'

For all their moody posturing, Editors always seemed like a band who really wanted to churn out radio-friendly stadium rock for dads who don’t want to play Joy Division in the car in case it scares the kids. Sure enough, in the four years since...

Album review: Editors - 'In This Light And On...

Can it really be this bad living with Edith Bowman? A dispute over nappy-changing: “You’ll get old and die here… you’ll choke, choke on the air you try to breathe” . Edith shaves her legs and doesn’t rinse the bath: “If there...

Textbooks out: the world’s gloomiest physics teacher is back and ready to regale us with another of his mortality-based questions. “If a plane were to fall from the sky/How big a hole would it leave in the surface of the Earth?” Cripes....

Editors : The Back Room
